Receiving two issues of this series at once has become a bit of a boon when it comes to Imperium. For a series that is so heavily plotted out in arcs, to be able to read several issues at once means I can see character development more clearly and see where it is going.

As is, the series continues to be gripping; especially now we are getting storylines from the view of Harada hi...

beginning to see a pattern in Joshua Dysart and Doug Braithwaite’s globe
trotting tale of a villain saving the world…by completely demolishing
